Buddy Activities

Good morning! This year we will be doing buddy activities with Mrs. Martin’s 5th grade class. Wednesday will be our first activity. If you would like to donate juice boxes and/or pretzels (big bags or individual), please send them in by Wednesday.

Also, second grade does an activity with finished toilet paper rolls. If you can send them in anytime, that would be great!

Thanks for your help!

Conferences and Movie Night Date Change

If you are not finding a date that will work for your schedule, I am willing to meet with parents for conferences in the morning that week. 7:45, 8:00, 8:15, 8:30 would be the available times. Please let me know by email if that would better suit your needs.

Hambright Family Fun Movie Night–DATE CHANGE
The Hambright Family Fun Movie Night is being moved to Friday, November 15th due to a conflict with homecoming for the original date. Hambright students and their immediate family members (i.e. parents and siblings only) are welcome.
Again, the movie night will now be held on November 15th. Doors will open at 6:30. The movie will begin at 7:00 pm. Entrance is FREE!
There will be more details about the evening coming home in November.

PTO Papers and Star Chart

There were 2 green PTO papers that came home in the last 2 days. The one didn’t have updated information on it. The one that says “new” at the top is the correct information.

Everyone saw the homework chart come home last night. Parents did a great job signing and returning! The color star on their paper represents how they did that day.

Pink: star student, purple: great choices, blue: good choices, green: ready to learn (everyone starts here each day), yellow: warning, orange: teacher’s choice, red: parent contact

We are off to a great start!
